This week, I chased lightning bugs, picked flowers, flicked fire from my fingertips, and crafted a sweet leather helmet. Like many of you, Jeff, Rey and I spent (too) much of our week wrapped in the warm, numbing embrace of
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. If you’re playing Skyrim, let’s trade some war stories in the comments! If you need help or support for the game, head here.
Otherwise, this week saw the release of three new
PlayStation Move games — Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest (from the creators of Move classic Sports Champions), Carnival Island (from team members Boom Blox and Guitar Hero), and Eyepet & Friends (from the creators of…Eyepet). We also got a final peek at Assassin’s Creed: Revelation’s Sentinel character, news of a Harry Potter-themed PS3 bundle that includes 3D Blu-rays and movie downloads for several Harry Potter titles, and a launch trailer for PSN retro revival BurgerTime: World Tour.
Lastly, this week also marked the five-year anniversary of PS3 in the United States, so we asked 21 leading game designers to name their
three favorite PS3 games. Read the full list, then share your three favorites in the comments. Be sure to tell us why!
